Trees and nuts

We bought some fruit trees for our backyard. There's a little nursery next to our vet with very reasonable prices. An old German guy who got his degree in philosophy from Texas A&M runs it.

We bought a peach tree

And a pear tree

And an apple:

After helping his dad plant the trees, Alexander celebrated. He's got this weird thing with putting objects on his head: buckets, lampshades, various articles of clothing that have one thing in common: they aren't hats.

Then he spent some time using the sink for his workout. He's getting buff.

Yes, lamest blog ever. After the armpit entry, I figured I could phone this one in and it would still be an improvement.

I'm so jealous! I always wanted fruit trees, but I am like a serial killer of anything green and leafy.

And, are you aware there is a dingo in your backyard, right by the apple tree??? What? You're sick of that joke, already?

ALSO, I had that same lampshade!!!

I actually quite enjoyed this blog, but then I'm a fan of fruit trees and lampshades, those are two of my favorite subjects.

I like the lampshade look!

Alex surely has a bright career in comedy; Gallagher better watch out because the old lampshade for a hat trick kicks the hammer and watermelon's butt every time.
